Cactus naturally regenerates soil.
Cactus used in the production is grown in an USDA certified organic farming system in the region of Zacatecas, Mexico.
Cacti can grow in severely degraded soils, which are inadequate for other crops.
It only takes 200 liters to grow 2 lbs. of cactus biomass which water is absorbed by the plant itself from humidity present in the atmosphere vs. 1000 liters (on average) to grow the same lbs. from other crops.
